What Clients Are Saying

Ivonne was prompt to our 1st meeting and really understood our situation. I was selling mom's condo while she still lived in it and was preparing to move. She helped smoothen the showing process for mom and was mindful of her dementia. Ivonne priced the property perfectly, more than we expected but not too high such that we didn't get all potential buyers.
